Description
Don't you wish now that you'd paid more attention in math class? Particularly when you're trying to calculate a fair tip or the discounted price on a new washer and dryer, or compute the odds that your football team will take next Sunday's game? Relax. Inside Business staff writer and former math teacher Laura Laing offers this adult refresher in practical math, with real-life examples ranging from estimating how many roof shingles you'll need for the garage to finding the right ratio for resizing Mom's tomato sauce recipe to feed a houseful of relatives.
